Mildred’s Umbrella – Dead Man’s Cell Phone

We speak with stage-director, Rob Kimbro, and Artistic Director and actress, Jennifer Decker, about the Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company’s production of Dead Man’s Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl. In this quirky comedy-drama, a woman who is having lunch at a local café is annoyed by another diner's ringing cell phone. When the woman discovers that the man is dead, she takes his phone and begins answering his calls, becoming deeply involved with the dark secrets of his life.
